The invasion of those hideous fluorescent light bulbs and cold-looking alternatives to incandescent lighting has snowballed recently and the results are simply horrendous, providing a quality of light that leaves humans looking in-human and rather hideous. Some lobbies and hallways of high end New York buildings are beginning to look like suburban medi-clinics. Now, a potential solution that combines the look of a traditional light bulb, with the energy savings we all can agree is important.
The “Lit” concept bulb designed by Elie Ahovi is an extremely elegant and innovative combination of LED and fiber optic technology, and could pave the way for incandescent replacements of the future. “Lit” proposes that light from LEDs can be piped into fiber optics which take on a look similar to the filament inside of an incandescent bulb. A traditional Edison-shaped polycarbonate housing covers the fiber optics giving the concept a familiar look to complement any style of fixture.
Again, technology leads the way for solutions to everyday problems!
